There's a chance to get fitter by joining the Trust10 10km runs at Polesden Lacey. The event is fun and not timed so it's really just a chance to try have a run without any pressure! Or join the Walk4Hope in Richmond Park. On a similar sporting theme come visit The Hockey Museum in Woking to celebrate National Sporting Heritage Day.

We should have much brighter and sunnier weather this week with temperatures nicely mid week. Whatever you end up doing, have a great week!
